…this has implications for Rights of the Child Commission – citizens
A tape-recording of a conversation between a boy who identifies himself as Julius from Linden , and an individual who many have identified as liaison to the president, Kwame McCoy, has implications for the Rights of the Child Commission and for the integrity of the Office of the President.
The recording which is circulating on the internet was aired on the website www.guyanaobservernews.org run by Mark Benschop, Friday evening.
According to Benschop, he is currently playing the recorded conversation after each hour of music on his website’s online radio.
It features a conversation that is sexual in nature and captures a moment of heartbreak over a failed sexual liaison.
When Kaieteur News contacted Mr. McCoy at his home yesterday, the President’s liaison, refused to go on record to deny that his was one of the voices on the recording.
The recording begins with the boy identifying himself and calling the name Kwame. The recipient of the call responds and queries the caller who identifies himself once more. The conversation was initiated by the young man who identified himself as Julius. After the preliminary introduction and a query from the person identified as Kwame about the failure of the two to keep a scheduled appointment, the boy says that he has never indulged in such a sexual dalliance and that he is skeptical.
He goes on to tell the person whom he calls McCoy that he was scared to have sex with him given that it is the first time that he would be doing something like that.
The person alleged to be McCoy then breaks down in tears at what he described as rejection given that he was given the impression that he was being avoided.
This, the person that identified himself as Julius says, was as a result of the fact that he had never done something like that.
The individual could be overheard telling who it is alleged to be McCoy, “Don’t cry Kwame…Don’t cry…Do that for me please. Don’t cry.” The crying goes on for some eight minutes of the recording which lasts for about 15 minutes.
This person identified as Kwame then talks about taking time from his work, and renting a room in a hotel because he had relatives at his home when Julius was supposed to visit. He talks about the money he gave to Julius and then further laments the rejection. The meeting was scheduled for Friday and the call from Julius was made on Thursday as gleaned from the conversation.
The individual identified as Julius is even overheard saying that, “What would you do to prove your love for me?” He gets an answer to the effect that he should consider all the time and money spent behind him as being a sign of this love.
In trying to seek to convince the person who identified himself as Julius that the sex should be no problem, the voice believed to be that of McCoy tells the individual that it is no different than having sex with a woman. The person that is said to be McCoy is overheard telling the youth that he was not looking for a one night stand or searching for just some sex adding that such a case would be easy.
The person said to be Julius added that he will make it up at the weekend when he would visit Georgetown to meet the person identified as Kwame McCoy
“You and I have talked about this thing many times,” the voice identified as McCoy’s stated and Julius responds, “I sorry.”
“Tell me straight what it is. Is either we have a relationship or not. If we don’t have a relationship and we are friends that’s fine with me,” the voice supposedly that of McCoy says.
The youth on the recording could also be overheard telling the other individual, “I like you; I like you. I like everything about you; I adore (you). Is just that I scared.”
The other voiced the question what is it that he was scared about, “having sex?”
The person identified as Julius said that he was going to make up his mind, “this weekend. I am going to make it up to you.” This proposal was greeted with, “It’s just like you having sex with a woman.”
Since the recording was first aired, people have telephoned to say that McCoy should not be a member of the Rights of the Child Commission. Some want him to resign as Liaison to the President. McCoy declined to take calls from people Friday evening. According to Benschop, McCoy’s telephone went unanswered when he, Benschop, called.
